It is a good thing that we have no such trouble with our bodily eyes; but the soul has an eye as well as the body. Yet one may be able, and for a time willing, and yet upon several reasons and motives change his mind, for the mind and will of man or angel is not absolutely immutable; and so, though perhaps they will not, yet it is possible, they may fail us. 21).III. Is there, then, some may be ready to ask, no such thing as assurance of personal salvation? But in thus drawing near unto God, and holding fast the profession of our hope, we must bear in mind that we are called to be a brotherhood, and that faith and hope are to be exercised in love. God has nowhere declared concerning any of us, as individuals, that we shall be saved; all that He has revealed on this subject respects us as characters. THE DUTY ENJOINED.1. Red. Stedfastness is essential to our final salvation.4. The promises upon the accomplishment so much of our comfort depends are promises of grace.3. But suppose we have thick, heavy shutters to the window, and keep them closed. He is a friend of ours who is set over the house of God (ver.

He has promised to reward our profession; and " He is faithful."Application:1. "With a pure heart." A true heart is a heart which accepts the testimony of God, which distrusts itself, which believes God's Word, declaring our sin, guilt, and helplessness, and which responds simply, and without reservation, humbly and joyfully to the Divine gospel of the gift of God, eternal life through the righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ. So is it ordinarily with the soul, after it has begun to force itself from the disturbing forces of the flesh and of the world. )Divine promisesR. Beg the great High Priest to "sprinkle" you; to do it at once, because you are at the worst, and just going to die. You know we have reins for our horses to keep them in the way they should go; and our consciences are the reins by which God guides us, and if we only mind the reins we shall save ourselves from sin and sorrow.2. The clock keeps on through the night, ticking away, till four o'clock in the morning. You know we have what are called detective police. They will do you no good if they profess to be your friends; and they will do you less harm by giving you the cold shoulder." But if you wish to have an additional object of faith in your own progress and spirituality, you are, like Peter, looking away from Jesus unto the unstable sea. Some honour God "with their lips, bug their heart is far from Him." During the reign of Queen Mary, Bishop Latimer was brought to trial for conscience' sake. The "assurance of faith" is a firm persuasion, a satisfactory evidence, that God does accept, pardon, save, and bless us, for Christ's sake; and this firm persuasion, this satisfactory evidence, arises, not only from the exceeding great and precious promises of His Word, but chiefly from the direct influence of His Spirit, bearing witness with our spirit that we are His children. )The effect of dwelling in the holiest of allAndrew MurrayEnter into the holiest of all, and dwell there.

"In ordinary cases," says a man eminent for his ability, piety, and experience, "I entertain a better opinion of the modest, doubting, and fearful professor than of the bold and assured one."2. When a robbery has taken place, or a murder has been committed, the business of these men is to try and find out the guilty ones. Note the relative position of this. The confession is the outward sign of the invisible hope. Place yourself under the "sprinkling"; if you cannot, ask Him to place you. If we profess hope, we must also rejoice, though we be in tribulation; we must view the sufferings and trials of this present life as not worthy to be compared with the coming glory. So that all is sure on God's part, and man hath no cause to waver, except he neglect his duty; and if he perish, his destruction must be of himself.

Lawson.1. Oh, it is dreadful to feel that God is angry with us I When we know that this is the case we never can be happy till our sins are pardoned and our consciences are healed; and it is for this reason that the Bible tells us of Jesus as "the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world." )Divine promisesR.

It would burn the skin off, and make a sore which would give you great pain. The apostle Paul speaks in one place of men's consciences, which, he says, have been "seared with a hot iron" (1 Timothy 4:2). This is our shame; but I notice it here, not so much as a humbling thought, as with a view of pressing upon Tour consciences the necessity of appearing before God at stated seasons, in order to put aside the continually-renewed guilt of your nature. B. Meyer, B.

Those around you know you to be professedly an heir of heaven, a child of God: it is well that they should. Hypocrisy is a disease in the vitals of religion; it pretends one thing and intends another. You may get near to Him ere you come to heaven; in His ordinances in the lower house, there you may have access to Him. IT IS A FACT — "He is faithful that promised."1.

We have nothing to plead but the worthy name of Jesus, and we need no other; and while we pray in His name, we may know ourselves sincerer however unworthy. “The Discipline of Fellowship” (Hebrews 10:23-25 sermon) Posted on 2014/09/29 by Shawn Thomas Cheryl & I are fond of assigning “chapter titles” to different episodes of our life together, as if they would be chapters in a book.

Suppose we feel distressed in our consciences on account of some wrong done to a friend or neighbour; then the way to get rid of this trouble, and heal our injured conscience, is to go and tell that friend of the fault — to say that we are sorry for it, and ask his forgiveness, thus making up for the wrong we have done. But how must the business of our drawing near to God be managed? Vaughan, M. A.Of course, the expression "sprinkled" is metaphorical. So in the heart of every man there is, deep down, the buried power of conscience, and in days of pain and sickness and loneliness and bereavement, of holy ministry and quickening, the voice of conscience, fathoms deep, is heard in the breast of man, speaking for God and truth, and of judgment to come.(F.

The confession is the outward sign of the invisible hope. They are many and various, every way suited to the numerous and diversified wants both of saints and sinners.II. )Christian lifeJ. These promises are not mere movements of the Divine mind arising only under the exigencies of new circumstances or of events which spring up in the progress of time, but they flow from the deep fountains of His own grace and love; they embrace all that which is involved in the gift of His dear Son, the great work of the Saviour, the communications of the Divine Spirit, and in the application of every blessing which God has engaged to bestow on His Church on earth. The first promise was that the seed of the woman should arrive in the fulness of time, and that He should bruise the serpent's head; that He should give Himself as a ransom, and purchase the Church with His own blood. And can we see anything in the room when the shutters are closed? "He is faithful that promised." Another came, and another, and the last account I heard from that ship was this, that every night thirty-two were meeting for prayer, thirty of them believed to be converted characters.

When we look through the red glass what colour will the things be that we are looking at? It is God's presence makes holy ground; God's immediate presence in Christ makes any place the holiest of all: and this is it into which we are to draw nigh, and in which we are to abide. We are secure; when one that is able hath passed his word, and by promise bound himself unto us, then we make sure thus far of the thing promised. A. Morris, D. D.)Approach to GodAnecdotes of Luther.On one occasion the Reformer paid a pastoral visit to a young scholar who was in his last illness, and one of the first inquiries made was, "What do you think you can take to God, in whose presence you are so shortly to appear?" But God will not, God cannot, for God who hath promised is faithful; for as He cannot forget or be hindered by any contrary power, so He cannot change His will. Some honour God "with their lips, bug their heart is far from Him." There must be constancy of spirit.

There are some evils from which a man may escape; but shall a man flee from a guilty conscience? Recollect the bad thoughts of various kinds which come into your minds like darts; for these will be some evidence to you of the pollution and odiousness of your nature. What inconceivable agony to be shut up with the ghostly memories of past sin, and to hear, through long centuries of gloom and despair, only the uttered and echoed curses which sin brings down upon the soul! He shed His precious blood and died for us on purpose that our sins may be pardoned, and we may be at peace with God. This faithfulness presupposeth His power and His promise, and it is the immutability of His will, for as He is unchangeable in His being, so He is in His promise (1 Samuel 15:29; Malachi 3:6).

A FEW BRIEF, PRACTICAL INFERENCES.1. Saphir.The apostle's great argument is concluded, and the result is placed before us in a very short summary. That is Christianity in a sentence. B. Meyer, B. A.The sailors on the French coast have a legend, that beneath the waters as they lap the shore, deep down, there are the ruins of a buried city, and that on still, quiet nights it is possible for a voyager to overhear the music of the church bells as they gently sound fathoms deep. The doctrine of Justification is a promise that the penalty of sin may be cancelled; the doctrine of Sanctification, that the power of sin may be destroyed.(R. Newton, D. D.)The cure for an evil conscienceJ.

"Provoke one another."3. And the book in which this is written is " the book of God's remembrance," of which the Bible tells us, and out of which we are to be judged at last.3. )An evil conscienceWhen the compass loses its proper polarity at sea, the whole course of the vessel might be altered by it; and when the conscience loses its right direction, its responsibility to God, its deference and inclination to His law, by its continued violation of the higher duties, the heart is filled with fears, the dispensations of Providence are suspected to be judgments, when they may be real and satisfying mercies.ConscienceNeighbour Jones has a conscience that looks forward and keeps him from doing wrong. Let us draw near with a true heart, in the full assurance of faith.2. His beautiful reply was, "Sir, I long for those springing flowers which shall never fade away." Christ, founded on a firm conviction that what is made known to us in the gospel. The apostle here lays down four directions:(1) Draw near to God sincerely. is true.

How MAY CONSCIENCE BE INJURED?1. Conscience will have a terrific power of starting such accusations, and then an ear of keen sensibility to receive the echoes as they roll back upon the soul What an occupation for eternity! If, after all, it has been a mistake and a delusion, then give it up. And in this spirit of love we should cherish Christian communion; "not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together." "LET US CONSIDER." No one need wait, then, for this before he approaches God in prayer. God is unchangeable both in His nature and purpose; it is impossible, therefore, that He can ever disappoint the hopes that His goodness has raised.(G. While pacing the deck at night, on the lonely seas, and talking with a pious shipmate, he became convinced of his need of a Saviour and became His disciple, remaining true to his profession to the last.

As a detector, to find out sin after it has been committed. You are yet afar off. But obviously all this would be in vain if it be not possible for Christians to have some well-founded assurance that they are in a state of salvation. This is held by those who teach that the faith which justifies is a confident assurance that the individual is himself in Christ, and so saved; and it is involved in the opinion of those who teach that every man who is in Christ knows this, and so is assured of his own safety. If we do not draw near to God, we dis-honour His Son, and so dishonour Himself, in so far as we frustrate the great design of the mystery of Christ (John 5:23).IV. )The Christian professionJ. But the eye of faith contemplates the Infinite Being. : —I. Having received, through Christ's sacrifice and Christ's present priesthood boldness, a full right of access into the holy of holies, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.
